Apache Buildr 1.4.20

A Ruby-based build system for Java-based applications
It has support for Scala, Groovy and a growing number of JVM languages and tools.

It is basically a build system based on Rake, for building Java applications.

Main features:

  • A simple way to specify projects, and build large projects out of smaller sub-projects.
  • Pre-canned tasks that require the least amount of configuration, keeping the build script DRY and simple.
  • Compiling, copying and filtering resources, JUnit/TestNG test cases, APT source code generation, Javadoc and more.
  • A dependency mechanism that only builds what has changed since the last release.
  • A drop-in replacement for Maven 2.0, Buildr uses the same file layout, artifact specifications, local and remote repositories.
  • Anything Ant can do, Buildr can do as well.
  • No overhead for building “plugins” or configuration. Just write new tasks or functions.
  • Buildr is Ruby all the way down. No one-off task is too demanding when you write code using variables, functions and objects.
  • Simple way to upgrade to new versions.
  • Fast.
